Transference and counter-transference in systems psychodynamic group process consultation: The consultant's experience

F. Cilliers, S. Rothmann, W. H. Struwig
2004 SA Journal of Industrial Psychology  
These differences involve triggers, characteristics and systemic valence. The consultants experienced counter- transference on five different cognitive and emotional levels.  ...  Distinguishing between personal and group emotions, receiving projections and managing transference, all contribute to the complexity of organisational consulting.  ...  Fourthly, future research should be conducted to establish how the valences of different consultants influence group dynamics.  ...

Mechanistic and non-mechanistic varieties of dynamical models in cognitive science: explanatory power, understanding, and the 'mere description' worry

Raoul Gervais
2014 Synthese  
the original source of publication and a link is inserted to the published article on Springer's website.  ...  Mechanistic and non-mechanistic varieties of dynamical models in cognitive science: Explanatory power, understanding, and the 'mere description' worry.  ...  After all, we are talking about dynamical cognitive science, which is the application of the mathematical tools of dynamical systems theory to cognitive phenomena: dynamical models are not just exercises  ...

Decision Science: A New Hope

Lee J Curley, Rory MacLean, Jennifer Murray, Phyllis Laybourn
2018 Psychological Reports  
In summary, the aim of this review is to highlight that a rather than the unified threshold model of decision-making may give a more adequate explanation of decision-making data in comparison to previous  ...  This review will introduce the reader to different types of threshold models (counter and diffusion), their assumptions, and their ability to explain decision-making behavior.  ...  One example of a unified theory of decision making is the Cognitive Continuum Theory, and this theory suggests that rationality is on a continuum, with intuitive and rational decision making at either  ...

Producing oscillatory decisions

2016 Neuroscience Communications  
Mathematical models in neuroscience have led to the formulation of new theories of cognition.  ...  Here we present some of the models that produce dynamic behavior of cognition, specifically those that produce temporal oscillations in decision-making.  ...  If for all cases the preference of a choice effectively counter-balances the preference of the other choices (e.g., in symmetric decision-making system), then the outcome may converge to a stable equilibrium  ...

Fuzzy cognitive maps for dynamic grid service negotiation

Chunyan Miao, Jianshu Weng, Angela Goh, Zhiqi Shen, Bo An
2006 Multiagent and Grid Systems  
The service trading is modeled as a dynamic system with interdependent relationships among negotiation issues.  ...  In this paper, a decision-making model based on Fuzzy Cognitive Map (FCM) theory is proposed for multi-issue negotiation which takes into account the causal relationships between the negotiation issues  ...  Theoretic background of Fuzzy Cognitive Map Fuzzy Cognitive Map (FCM) is a modeling and analyzing tool for complex dynamic systems. It is first proposed by Bart Kosko [20, 21] .  ...

The articulation of symbol and mediation in mathematics education

Luis Moreno-Armella, Bharath Sriraman
2005 Zentralblatt für Didaktik der Mathematik  
In this paper we include topics which we consider are relevant building blocks to design a theory of mathematics education.  ...  In doing so, we introduce a pretheory consisting of a set of interdisciplinary ideas which lead to an understanding of what occurs in the "central nervous system" -our metaphor for the classroom and eventually  ...  Mathematics from a Dynamic viewpoint: the future of mathematics education We tend to believe that with the help of some software students can, for instance, achieve diverse representations, explore different  ...

The potential of Fuzzy Cognitive Maps for semi-quantitative scenario development, with an example from Brazil

Kasper Kok
2009 Global Environmental Change  
An example from the Brazilian Amazon shows that by including an integrated set of factors and feedbacks, Fuzzy Cognitive Maps can capture (future) dynamics of deforestation.  ...  The tool is designed, however, to be simple and therefore has important drawbacks. Future improvements should be made in the light of applications within a larger toolbox of scenario methods. ß  ...  Furthermore, I would like to thank Dale Rothman for his insightful comments on a later draft. The constructive comments of two anonymous reviewers are highly appreciated.  ...

Living Cognitive Society: a `digital' World of Views [article]

Viktoras Veitas, David Weinbaum
2015 arXiv   pre-print
We propose a conceptual framework for thinking about a dynamically changing social system: the Living Cognitive Society.  ...  The framework addresses society as a living cognitive system -- an ecology of interacting social subsystems -- each of which is also a living cognitive system.  ...  It is based on the material presented at Summit 2015 of the International Society for Information Studies 17 , conference track 'The Global Brain and the Future Information Society' 18 .  ...

Enactivist Interventions: Rethinking the Mind

Zuzanna Rucińska
2019 Avant: Journal of Philosophical-Interdisciplinary Vanguard  
For example, the positive proposal accounting for action (Chapter 5) is one borrowed from pragmatism and one invoking dynamic systems theory.  ...  (pp. 161-162) While I support the concept of affordances as well as dynamical systems theory and all the other branches, I am left wondering what the unique contribution of the enactivist proposal is.  ...
